Fourth Podium Poll for Friday, November 12 [SPOILERS]

Post by opusthepenguin »

There was no beating Andrew He today--$14000 in lach trash against Andrew's $24800 going into FJ and his correct response. Still, I thought I'd put this together since there was a lot to pick up. I threw in the two missed DDs just for fun, but no DD would have been available to a fourth podium player. (You only get those if the previous clue was a TS.)

Add up the points for the ones you got right (not including DDs and FJ), subtract the ones you got wrong (I'm looking at YOU, people who said The Big Sleep for DJ20!), and tell us whether you could've won this game if only Andrew had choked on FJ. My bet is no one here had a shot.

SJ1 $1000 AROUND THE HOUSE: the Conservatory
SJ11 $800 AROUND THE HOUSE: a cornice

(Remember to use :| for clam and only use :( if you guessed and missed).

That's a measly $7000 for me and even that involved a charitable assumption that I would've rung in with Edinburgh before time expired. That clue took a bit of untangling and I might've been too chicken to pull the trigger.

The last time the word in DJ3 came up as a correct response, we got this comment which bears repeating:

They expect me to know the anther? I thought the whole point of the show is that they give us the anthers, and we give them the questions!

You should have known better; Grand Central is a terminal and they asked for a station. ;)

Guessed Union instead of Penn.

I don't think I went to Gare du Nord (no 'd' sound on the end, Ken) when I was in Paris. I did take the TGV from Marseilles to Paris, but that came in to Gare de Lyon.

Been to the Gare du Nord enough to make it an Instaget.
Also been to NYC’s Penn station enough to make that an easy choice.

$7800 + three wagering opportunities

conservatory, no-kill, tuna, Loki, The Poseidon Adventure, oracle

(Plus the Exorcist daily double.)

$4,800, nowhere near contention but enough to secure second.

Final: I knew the play was Rosencrantz... but not the writer's name. Said Edward Albee to have something.
Oh, what has science wrought? I sought only to turn a man into a metal-encased juggernaut of destruction powered by the unknown properties of a mysterious living crystal. How could this have all gone wrong?

$8800 for me, plus DD1. Probably not enough since no clue on FJ!
